BTU, Amperage, and Wattage for Atwood 15k BTU AC Unit Plus Generator Recommendation


how many btu,s does it use and how big of a generator would i need for that and other small aplinences?


Expert Reply:

bTu is a measurement of thermal energy. The Atwood Air Command Rooftop RV Air Conditioner w/ Heat Pump # AT15028-22 can put out 15,000 bTu. But if you are interested in the amount of current it draws it's amperage rating is 13.3 amps and wattage is 4,830 watts starting and 1,530 running. So you'd need a generator rated for over 4,830 to run the AC unit.

For that the A-iPower 9,000-Watt Portable Generator # 289-SUA9000E would work well and would give you plenty of wattage to run other things than just the AC unit.
